Hi, welcome to Marathon Handbook!

We’re an independent group of running coaches and fitness enthusiasts, passionate about helping more people run far.

Since launching in 2016, we’ve grown from a small ultrarunning site to a huge community focused on running, health, fitness, and nutrition.

Everyone on our team is a runner and practitioner first and foremost, and all of our articles, plans, and resources are independently reviewed by two certified coaches.

Meet the team!
